    Default Fire Service Can Crusher

    Has anyone seen a fire service themed aluminum can crusher? Thinking along the lines of a fire hydrant that you put the can in and it gets crushed, etc. Just something kind of different to have around a fire station other than the standard can crushers. If so, who manufactured it and how do I get in contact with them.

    Thank you,
    Walt.

    Yeah,they park them in the apparatus bay and call them ladders,engines,trucks,rigs and other names.
    BTW,"Per Department Order 358,Firefighter Doug Hesson is no longer allowed to use department vehicles to 'squish' things."
    That order is still in effect at my old department even though I haven't been a member since Dec 2005.

    Yea, but it has to be big enough to fit an E-One! Remember to recycle!

    Thank you for stating the obvious doughesson. While effective that's not quite what I was looking for.
    RoaddoggAK, I agree with you regarding the recycling. I have a theory about apparatus with an oval on the front.

    Saw the Haligan can opener on another post. That is along the lines of what I was thinking for a can crusher.

    Thanks guys,
    Walt

    Wait....you are going to crush a can with a can opener......interesting approach. I vote for running them over, sparky too, he's a smartass.
